Traditionally, Robert Craig has done a brilliant job with their selection from Mount Veeder, and the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) shows that haunting blueberry, raspberry, black raspberry and floral notes that seem characteristic of that AVA. A dense ruby/purple color, beautifully sweet purity, full-bodied opulence with a layered mouthfeel as well as sweet tannin make for another great 2013 that can be drunk young or cellared for 20-25 years.

The spices and fresh herbs come through the cool fruit here. Hints of sweet tobacco. Full body, silky tannins and a juicy finish. A delicious red with lots of character and tone. Attractive now but better in 2020. (JS)
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Mt. Veeder) opens with a blast of dark blue/purplish fruit, spices, menthol and licorice. A host of graphite, slate, game, iron and savory notes appears later, adding considerable nuance throughout. The 2013 packs plenty of intensity, but the style is distinctly fruit-driven for the year. These 2013 Cabernets from Robert Craig are all quite attractive, but they are also surprisingly juicy and fruit-driven, with less of the structure and tannic spine that is typical of the vintage. I expected to see a little more structure in these wines, especially following the superb 2012s. (AG)
